Mark Uglem, R-Champlin, introduced an amendment to the transportation funding bill ordering the Metropolitan Council to find a solution about passengers who don't pay their fares.

Even if every rider paid the lite-rail would lose money into infinity.

Correct, if you watch Legislator every year the Met Council, the commies, have to beg for $150,000,000 to keep each LRT line operating. Of course that doesn't include the rail tax on property taxes AND a portion of the MVST we all pay on purchace of a car.
Met Council should be dissolved!!!
All the public transit should be fee based and if it's don't pay for its operation shut it down...
